Getting to Know The Isotope's New Neighborhood
Hayes Green @ Octavia & Fell st

Whether you have kids or are just a kid at heart, the Isotope's new neighborhood offers a place to frolic on your way to or from picking up your weekly comic fix, the newly constructed Hayes Green.

The Hayes Green, a park located where the new Octavia Boulevard meets Fell and Hayes Streets, which just so happens to be located a half a block from the Isotope's new front door, features expanses of grass, picnic tables, and what the Isotope staff has already dubbed "the best jungle gym ever." (Keep your eyes peeled for pictures of the staff climbing on, hanging from and falling of off this particular piece of park equipment.)

But perhaps the park's most notable feature is the glorious temporary art exhibit that has been the talk of the SF art world, an ornate gazebo-like temple built and designed by local sculptor David Best, whose massive temporary art installations at Burning Man are legendary.

We all suggest checking out this cool metropolitan recreation area and witnessing David Best's latest creation in person when you stop by the Isotope in the coming weeks. Very, very cool.

For more information on this newly erected urban park check out the Isotope's Hayes Green photos, Laughing Squid's pictures of the Hayes Green temple, or read about the project @ Adventures in Urban Living.
